Materializing the Ephemeral: A Lecture-Performance on the Technological Art of Loie Fuller (1862-1928)
Early modern dancer Loie Fuller created a unique art form by crafting mesmerizing, multi-media spectacles out of fabric, motion, color and light. Given today’s interest in technology and performance, it’s fascinating to look at the ingenious ways Fuller harnessed and advanced stage technology from the 1890s through the 1920s. Using electric lighting, specially-engineered effects, and magic-lantern projections, Fuller enraptured fin de siècle Paris—she was a favorite subject of visual artists and became embodiment of the Art Nouveau spirit. In this presentation, Jody Sperling offers a slide-show of images of Fuller’s dance and spells out some of the issues the work provoked in its use of technology. The presentation concludes with the performance of Sperling’s original choreography, Dance of the Elements, a luminous tribute to Fuller’s magic.
